What to know about New Student Orientation:

What is new student orientation? It is an event that acquaints new students with each other and the Lake Region State College campus. It is a series of different activities that help new students get to know each other and the many different resources available on our campus. Fun performers such as mentalists or hypnotists, club and community fairs, and breakout sessions of the “need to know” new student survival plan.

Why is new student orientation important to attend? This is an opportunity to make new friends while learning about our campus so that new students and first-time freshmen do not feel lost in the first week of your first semester.

Who is new student orientation for? It is recommended for all students new to Lake Region State College, but it is mandatory for all Devils Lake campus-based first-time freshmen living on or off-campus.
